the personal web site of Thomas James (Jimmy) Allen.
I design and code web sites for a living. I am an independent contractor with my own company, GetYourWebsiteHere.com.
I usually subcontract through IIr Associates Inc., and specialize in websites for small to medium-sized engineering firms.
My interests range beyond the internet, and in fifty-some years I’ve done and been lots of things, including Philosophy teacher at UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Kinko’s manager and co-worker, science student, chess player, photographer, poet and beachcomber. I’ve earned my bachelors (UVa ’83) and masters (UCSB ’89) degrees in Philosophy, been an antiques and collectibles dealer, eBayer, slot car collector, woodworker, paperboy, and plenty more things that you won’t see on my resume.
A good way to find things at GYWH.com is to view my website’s A to Z List.
